Twenty-six-year-old businessman Akeem Adamson of Grove Park Avenue, Kingston 8, was charged with Obtaining Money by Means of False Pretence after a woman made reports of a failed business transaction that occurred between October 2022 and April 6 of this year.

According to Montego Bay Police, the woman requested Adamson’s assistance in purchasing a vehicle, and the agreed sum was paid to him. The vehicle was not delivered as promised, so the woman requested a refund. She then proceeded to file a report with the police after the money was not returned, and an investigation was launched.

Adamson was taken into custody and charged on Friday, January 5.

His court date is being finalised.
